Michael Portillo travels from Newhaven to Worthing, examining the nation's hidden defences, and taking in two magnificent engineering achievements - the Ouse Valley Viaduct and the Clayton Tunnel. High on top of a favourite Victorian beauty spot he learns how trains carried hordes of day-trippers to fly kites, and finds a novel way to pick tomatoes in Worthing.
Thanks for pointing us in the right direction John, I have seen a lot of the stuff Michael Portillo has done as the format of his documentaries are very interesting and informative, but this one was personal.
What a star his guest was, likewise his knowledge was interesting and informative, I anticipated eventual failure to 'get it up' after several edited attempts,but the kite fliers smile at the end said it all!
I think Portillo had a great day flying with his expert tutor, eh?
